It’s no secret that consuming fish is a great way to increase your daily intake of vitamins and minerals. However, not everyone has the stomach needed to eat the proper amount of fish weekly that they should be to achieve these extensive benefits. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that fish oil supplements have become so popular in recent years.
Omega-3s are unable to be made inside of the body, so fish oil supplements are the easiest form to take. Manufactured from the oils found in the tissues of fish, these supplements provide two specific groups of omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. While traditionally originating from algae, fish consume these omega-3s because they are their primary food source in aquatic settings.
What are the Benefits of Omega-3s?
You would be hard pressed to find a nutrient that has been more extensively studied than omega-3 fatty acids. Because fish oil supplements are a primary source of this nutrient, they can provide the same great benefits as eating oily fish without actually consuming them. Here are some of the extensive benefits fish oil supplements provide, all backed by science!
- Cardiovascular Support – For individuals that have increased risk factors for heart disease, omega-3s can help. Most notably, fish oil supplements provide support for high blood pressure, cholesterol levels and a decreased blood clot risk. However, no evidence currently supports the belief that omega 3s can decrease the risk of stroke or heart attacks.
- Inflammation Support – Chronic inflammation has been linked to a variety of detrimental health problems including cancer and heart disease. Most often, inflammation occurs as your body works to remove infections or damage that may be present in your body. Studies have shown that omega-3 supplements, like fish oil, can help reduce chronic inflammation.
- Skin Support – If you are looking to prevent sun damage and keep your skin healthy, then fish oil supplements might be an overlooked supplement for you. Both DHA and EPA, the main components in omega-3s, have been proven to support cell membrane health. This results in soft, unwrinkled skin and prevents premature aging.
- Sleep Support – Poor sleep habits can contribute to a wide variety of diseases such as depression and obesity. If your body doesn’t have the proper supply of DHA, it also will have decreased levels of natural melatonin. By increasing your DHA intake with fish oil supplements, you may be able to improve the quality and length of your sleep.
